As for Rand Paul...he has already said some pretty crazy stuff regarding gay marriage, voting rights and blacks already (just do a Google/YouTube search) which will be used as ammunition against him. So yes I do want him to run in 2016 !

I wasn't aware we were dealing with a true liberal head case...

Besides knowing how to lie on camera, what does being an actress do to make you qualified to hold political office.
You seem to be ignoring the fact that Judd has a masters in public administration from Harvard. I'd say that a masters from Harvard indicates intelligence, "logical understanding" and "problem solving abilities." Sounds like you may be from a generation that basically thought of medical doctors as "gods" of sorts. Not true. Many of them have "issues".....such as drug addictions, narrow-mindedness, and in their personal lives many make decisions which hardly seem "logical."

You can no more make the huge generalization that all doctors are "smart" and have "logical understanding" and make good decisions than you can say ALL actresses are dumb and airheads.

My comment had nothing to do with him being an MD or not, it has to do with that being a qualification for being a Senator.

Well for those who think this country needs to be more towards the center and unified, going for someone like Judd would be a mistake, given her statements and views. She is far left and kind of a whacko. Who the hell refers to having kids as breeding anyways?

Surely you're not referring to two term governor Ronald Reagan, right?





Guess again.

This is a non story. Judd might have a shot at getting elected in a state like California or Massachusetts where her brand of inane leftism would be appreciated but we're talking about Kentucky.

She has no chance in hell there!

I get that you had no idea that he was a doctor and are now trying to cover by arguing, but I'm still happy to answer. Since Obama's signature piece of legislation was a health care overhaul, and we are spending multiple year implementing said program, a doctor is much needed background in this current Congress.
